Engel orFrabill Aqua Life

Recommended Posts

Looking to buy a bait cooler . I have been reading lots of comments about Engel but none on Frabill Aqua life . Is there a preference for one over the other ?

I have three Aqua Life units - used them when I had a wheel house since they were battery powered and had a 12 volt auxiliary cable.  Pros - they kept the bait just fine.  Cons - They are top heavy and tip over easily if not well secured; the air pump and battery compartment are fragile, prone to failure, had a couple replaced under warranty.  

 

Now with a cabin and deploying on sleds with portables, I use the three units to keep bait in the shed, powered by aquarium air pumps.  Occasionally, I will take one out on the lake full of 8" suckers for pike fishing since they have more room than my 1.5 gal Frabill insulated bait buckets.

 

I never heard of Engel before.

I’ve been on the Engel bandwagon this year.  I have been using Frabil containers for years before (not the Aqua Life) and have broken them all.

 

After buying the Engels I did see the Aqua Life’s in the store and stepped up to see if they would give me buyers remorse for going Engel.

 

Nope.  They’re nowhere near the quality.

 

I did find out recently that Engel made their market in medical transport.  Drugs, lab samples, even organs.  Anything that had to stay cool for a time and be secure.  Maybe that’s why the earlier models some fishermen have use the trays instead of the nets?

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
